Mike Browne Photography Course Reviews
from our lovely students - photographers just like you...
I have gone from looking at my digital camera with confusion to having loads of confidence - and now my camera and I will be going on many new adventures. I can not say thanks enough.
I remember the first time I opened Lightroom: Wow, where do I start?... Watching your course you make it looks so easy to master!
7 Building Blocks has taught me to slow up, consider each block patiently - ultimately to take less images but (hopefully) better ones.
I have been interested in photography for years, but if I am honest I never quite knew what do to with settings etc. Mike made this course so easy to understand. I have l learnt more with Mike's Ultimate Beginners Course over the past six weeks than I have ever done before.
Now I've completed the ultimate beginners course i'm looking forward to starting your 7 steps course which I am aiming to have completed before i join you on the 9th of June this year on your one day beginners workshop
I have a much greater understanding of my camera and the controls. I love working in manual mode over the semi auto modes now, even if it takes longer.
7 Steps to Perfect Pictures is a much more demanding course than the Building Blocks course because it's akin to learning a new language. Even if one masters the grammar that's useless unless the vocabulary comes easily in conversation when it's needed. So for me, the true value of the course was to provide me with the elements that will enable me to become "fluent" over time.
The ultimate beginners course has improved my photography and now I'm constantly searching for creative things to shoot, even in the most mundane of locales.
7 Steps to Perfect Pictures has helped me understand my creative options. The step-by-step approach motivated me to immediately try out the techniques both in the weekly exercises and on my own images...
I read a comment somewhere that they could get all this for free on You-Tube so why pay? Let me tell you that you can find lots of free stuff on Lightroom but nothing that can take you from point A to point B in such a methodical, clear, jargon free way. Mike is a natural!
The 7 Steps to Perfect Pictures course has provided the learning, challenge, inspiration and motivation I was looking for. Thank you very much.
The notion that the picture begins with the photographer and not the camera is a powerful one. The course, like the best educational tools, was particularly valuable because it allowed me to think not only about my pictures before I took them, but more importantly it enabled me to better assess why the photos that didn't work failed.
Ultimate Beginners Course is the easiest online course I've ever taken.
I was forever losing files and getting missing file notifications, now I know where everything is and it has saved me time looking for where my files are.
Ultimate Beginners Course is the best value for money around and it is worth much more than the sum of its parts.
I used to think that clear blue skies were the best; but now I realise that the 'blue holes' as you call them are magic.
Week 2 'Let there be light' was a breakthrough for me.
There is so much more I am learning from your course, but I would be here all day writing about it...lol. It is helping me immensely, thank you

First an foremost the course makes you think differently. I no longer take an image as I first see it but look for alternate compositions. I also use the light differently, if possible I wait for the light if not, I go back...
To me, knowledge is power, and having the ability to put that power into practice is priceless. The Ultimate Beginners Course imparts a great deal of knowledge in a simple concise manner.
I highly recommend the Ultimate Beginners Course to others and would encourage anyone who feels they are not getting enough from their current photography efforts to take this course.
Ultimate Beginners Course put me in control and made me ask myself the right questions when things went wrong.
The 7 Building blocks of Photography made me work hard at determining what I can do to improve my photography.
Ultimate Beginners Course took me from photo illiteracy to surprising my friends and myself with some beautiful pictures!
Before Ultimate Beginners Course it was just auto point and press and now I look forward to taking the next photo.
The 7 Building blocks of Photography gave me a structured, disciplined approach to photography.
After Ultimate Beginners Course I now know a lot more technical stuff about my camera. I also got some good ideas on how to compose a picture and make it look interesting.
Before Ultimate Beginners Course I was no good at panning but now I have greatly improved
I take more time to take a picture and actually look for some kind of composition - at least I try...
121 Training has been invaluable to me!
Ultimate Beginners Course was a path of organised learning.
The lessons on depth of field and perspectives were really helpful.
Signing up for Ultimate Beginners Course was the best decision I ever made.
Ultimate Beginners Course took away the fear I had of using manual
The Ultimate Beginners Photography Course has been very helpful for me as it has awaken all the knowledge (and a lot of new things due to the course) I've had in my head since I last used a film camera.
My assessment so far is that 7 Steps to Workflow Mastery is not just about Lightroom/Workflow but for people who CARE about photography and their photos.
Your concept of the 7 Building blocks of Photography and how you presented it is just brilliant.
Your course was really a big inspiration.
I can control the light better and shoot in manual mode with no fear
You have greatly helped me understand photography. I look forward to pushing in and checking out your other lessons!
Money well spent...
Thank you very much again for your patience and help!
... and interesting
After purchasing The 7 Building Blocks of Photography it was clear to see the results in my work almost immediately.
I am sure would be professionals and enthusiasts with even basic knowledge will find the course invaluable and gain serious benefit. In the general cost of on-line photography training, this course is excellent value for money.
If you rely on free stuff alone, then you will find all sorts of good but conflicting advice, and are liable to get confused, because there are many different ways of reaching the same goal. This course gives you a solid framework.
From the first couple of minutes it was clear that the only way forward was to follow your workflow. That was how clear and concise your approach was. Moving catalogs and dealing with libraries, locating and consolidating images and other points you so delicately hammered home are the mainstay of successful workflow.
7 Building Blocks course is still great value even at the new price. It has paid for itself many times over.

The 7 Building Blocks of Photography gave me the tools to think about what I want and how to go about it (in photography terms), by using the rational 7 blocks. Thanks to this course I’m now an established, published landscape photographer.
My advice is buy it - and complete it. COMPLETE IT!
